WOW top finished

I am so stoked this top is finally finished. When I got home from Wednesday quilt group two weeks ago, I had laid out all the squares and staked and labeled the piles, i sewed the top together that night...didn't go to bed until about 3:30 a.m. but it was worth it. All the colored fabrics I hand dyed over the years. I am so happy with this top...now I just need to figure out how to quilt the darn thing. I do know I will be using either a wool or alpaca batting.
Still about a foot of snow all over the place but it is melting fast.

Breathtaking!! So gorgeous! Your hand dyes look amazing. Great job!

I can't believe it snowed there again. You know, it's been cold here, too! This winter, I had to unpack my little space heater that's been in storage for 10 years! The coldest winter here that I can ever remember...
